VENICE - Arsenale
10th Biennale of Architecture - Le Corderie. Visiting the exhibition, Cities, Architecture and Society, in the Corderie dell'Arsenale, on the left, the leader of the Senate, Fausto Bertinotti is given a private tour by it's curator Richard Burdett. The Theme of the 10th International Architectural Exhibition is dedicated to cities, global urbanization, and to the architecture that can determine the cities' governance and transformations, the deep changes and the development of a harmonious social fabric. For the first time Venice's Biennale focuses its attention on the tangible concerns arising in contemporary society, investigating models of interaction between cities, architecture and it's inhabitants. Asked what was his idea of an ideal city, Mr Bertinotti replied "My ideal city of the future would be a place where men and women of different ethnic cultures can enrich their lives, side by side."
